If you haven’t noticed by now, Awesome Dudes Printing at 6th and Reed streets in South Philadelphia is one of the growing Philly businesses (like Honeygrow’s Headquarters and Elixr) that have a rotating mural game going on, and seriously y’all it’s always so damn good.

This month Awesome Dudes unveiled a new, temporary mural, titled The Currency of Time, by Brooklyn-based artist, Scott Albrecht!

Scott talks about his work on his website: “The work I create is inspired by the day-to-day that happens around me – from the undeniably larger events, down to the smaller ones that we regularly interact with but almost always ignore. I draw inspiration from these moments, and use my work as a way to highlight these experiences and through the process, reflect on what they have to offer. Because of this, I often see my process and final works as though I’m creating reminders or artifacts for myself of these ideas and situations, and have come to use this perspective as a guide in my work — to create something worth being reminded of.”
